challenges and difficulties
Burt Bacharach has a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies. Without realizing it, he prevents himself from appreciating new viewpoints and attitudes. Bacharach is more rigid and dogmatic than he realizes. His approach may also be too intellectual or moralistic. Burt Bacharach takes his own political beliefs and spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if he is not 100% clear about some ideology or theory.
He is very conscientious, responsible, and concerned with his duty, his public image and reputation, and becoming a person of stature in the world. Burt Bacharach understands the need for hard work and careful planning in order to accomplish anything substantial and he is capable of much self-discipline and patience once he sets his sights on a goal.
But Burt Bacharach is very judgmental and hard on himself if he fails to attain success, and he can become dry, bitter, or cynical if the world does not recognize his efforts.
Burt Bacharach tends to be his own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of himself and harshly criticizing or persecuting himself when he does not measure up. Perhaps circumstances or relationships in his life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing Burt's belief that he must struggle alone.
He is capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts Burt Bacharach develops his power and inner strength. However, Burt Bacharach should not make life harder than it is. He must give himself permission to let up sometimes, and to realize that he is only human.
His ambition and desire for power may be somewhat out of proportion and Bacharach can be quite ruthless when faced with potential obstacles and difficulties. Burt Bacharach must learn to control his temper and be willing to compromise.
He is somewhat pessimistic and prone to depression. Burt Bacharach may feel like withdrawing from everything, with the sense that he is not adequately equipped to handle his life. He may need someone else's point of view to balance his overly pessimistic outlook.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which Burt Bacharach instinctively and habitually reverts to when under stress - a mostly subconscious process that he is apt to over indulge in because it is so familiar and hence easy for him. The direction Burt Bacharach needs to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Burt Bacharach needs to take what he has learned (either through formal education or his own questing and life experience) and share it with others, communicate it or express it in a way that can benefit others. Knowledge and understanding, which does not enhance either Burt's quality of life or that of persons in his world, is of little real value. Putting Bacharach's understanding, philosophy, and convictions into practice in his daily relationships, and in the multiple choices he makes every day, will enable Burt Bacharach to really test his belief system and discover more about life.
When under stress, Burt Bacharach is apt to seek refuge in imagining that the grass is greener elsewhere, rather than working with what is at hand. Burt Bacharach needs to cultivate his ability to live in the present!
It is in trying to strike a balance between Bacharach's inner, personal life and his career or involvement with the world at large that he is most likely to wrestle with these issues. Burt Bacharach needs to focus attention on his home and family situation, and create a secure inner anchor.
